How Climate Control Protects Valuable Possessions
Climate-controlled storage units help protect your items from extreme temperature changes. These units stay between about 65 and 85 degrees, without significant humidity. With these storage units, you need not worry about decay, mold, and mildew of most delicate items. Our climate-controlled units may be a better option than storing in your unfinished basement or garage. (Remember, packing your items properly is also crucial for safe self-storage.)
What Can I Store in Climate-Controlled Units?
Some of the delicate items that may benefit from climate control in your storage unit include:
- Electronics, Computers, Cameras: Items like photo equipment and accessories are pricey, so choose self-storage with climate control to keep moisture, condensation, and corrosion at bay.
- Photos and Film: If you’ve ever seen curled, faded, and cracked photos, you know they have been exposed to heat, cold, and humidity/moisture. Keep these memories alive by storing in climate-controlled conditions.
- Important Documents: Some paper items would be difficult or impossible to replace. Original birth certificates, diplomas, and more should be stored in an area with few temperature fluctuations and low humidity.
- Leather and Fabric Upholstered Furniture: Cushioned furniture like sofas, couches, easy chairs, and recliners, can be damaged by moisture in the air. You could even end up with moldy, mildewed furniture or an insect infestation in your couch, thanks to our local humid weather. Opt for climate control to help keep furniture in great condition.
- Antiques or Fine Wood Furniture: Natural wood can warp or become misshapen due to moisture-caused swelling, if you keep it in an un-insulated basement. If you store it in your garage, exposure or a roof leak could lead to wood rot, ruining your furniture. At the very least, drawers or cabinet doors may not close properly–unless stored in climate control.
- LP Records and Videotape: Old school record collections can suffer in the heat. Vinyl can melt and warp, ruining your favorite albums. Temperature changes and humidity can damage magnetic videotape and cassettes, especially when condensation forms. Choose climate-controlled storage.
- Musical Instruments: Wooden surfaces can become dull and warped; joints can fail and strings can be damaged on a piano or guitar. Mold can attack clarinets, oboes, and other brass or woodwind instruments. If you have instruments to store, opt for temperature and humidity-controlled storage.
- Wine: Fine wine often improves with age, but only when properly stored. If you don’t have a wine cellar in your home, protect your wine collection from heat and fluctuating temperature, in climate-controlled storage unit(s).
- Collectibles: Any valuable collection you may have put together over time, like a stamp collection, baseball cards, or comic books, deserves climate-controlled storage. This way you can preserve both its sentimental and monetary value.
